I would like to bring to your attention the improved support for system processor (CPU) microcode updates, for x86/i686/x86-64/amd64 systems that was recently added to [non-free] Wheezy.
Alas, this will not work for XEN users because I can’t update the microcode in Dom0 with xen-hypervisor 4.1. There exist kernel patches (over a year old), but according to the xen-devel ML they are not good enough to be included in the kernel.
With XEN 4.2 the hypervisor can load the CPU microcode. Would this be a reason to include XEN 4.2 in Wheezy?
